This is a 2 part podcast: the first 30 minutes are about real world politics in comics and what one company is doing to change that and the second 30 minutes is a review for FX Network’s Legion show. I didn’t want to confuse you and think it was a political discussion based on the Legion show.
Part 1 (minutes 1 – 30)
Recently in some comics, writers have been using existing comic universe characters as analogies for Donald Trump as not so subtly done in DC’s Catwoman (but still very funny).
Other comics have blatantly lampooned Trump in their comics like Marvel’s Spider Gwen seen here:
Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter (who does support Trump) wants writes to stop using real world politics in their stories. Jon and I discuss the implication of Marvel not using real world characters in their stories and if it is a good or bad thing.
Okay. Enough politics! Let’s talk about the FX show Legion.
Part 2 of the podcast (minutes 31 – 60)
Based on Marvel’s David Haller AKA Legion, the show is about the mutant that has a multiple personality disorder. We review the first episode.
we reveal some of the secrets of the 1st episode so don’t listen if you have not see it yet! Go watch the show (it’s great!) and then come back to listen to our takes on were we think it is going.
Your comics pal,
